On this episode, I talked to a career counselor. She tells us what her job entails (how she helps people), what can a career counselor help with and what can't they, the experience vs credentials problem, advice for people who are thinking about starting their own business, advice for shy or introverted people, advice for polymaths and jacks of all trades, and more.
